Fans of Celebrity Big Brother will of course know that former model Paula Hamilton became the first celeb to leave the house this week, but she didn’t leave alone because her BFF Boris the coconut was with her…

And in an interview with the Daily Star today, Paula has revealed that not only did Boris offer her sage advice through the trials and tribulations she endured in the house, he took a bit of a shine to former Corrie star Sam Robertson. Yes, Boris the coconut is gay, apparently.

Proving – if proof were needed – that she’s nuttier than squirrel poo, Paula said of Boris, “Boris is my gay best friend. That’s why I let him in my bed and in the bath.

“I look to him for advice. He tells me: ‘Keep calm and carry on.’ If I don’t take his advice he gives me a right telling-off…

“If people think I’m mad or coconuts, I don’t care. It’s only English people who think that.”

Really? Are you sure? I suspect a goodly few people outside of England may feel it’s a tad odd to have a talking coconut as your best mate.

However, Paula added, “They don’t want people to be individuals, they just want robots with no personality.

“Boris has been with me for decades. Being someone with learning differences and having no-one to talk to about how I feel inside, he is the one person I would sit down and talk to.”

And of Boris’s reception in the CBB house, Paula said, “All the celebs talked to him and gave him kisses. He is very upset he didn’t get any airtime.

“Clearly they had an issue showing him on TV. Ask the cameramen why!

“They never asked to see him in the Diary Room but on my last day when I asked Boris if he wanted to go in there, he said: ‘Not really.’”

It seems that Boris was more than a tad upset about his CBB treatment, because he added, “They shut me in a suitcase for 12 hours while Paula was in the basement and then when they let me out, they didn’t show me on telly.paula hamilton

“I’m furious. Perhaps they thought they had enough old fruits and nutcases in there.

“I quite fancied that Sam Robertson but he was too into himself. And I was jealous of Razor. He was hairier than I was.”


Returning to Paula, of her ‘panic attack’ in the house on the very first night, and of her threats to leave, she admitted that neither were real.

She said, “That was just me being a drama queen. I never really wanted to leave, I just had the winter blues.

“I was being over-emotional. I don’t spend winters here normally.”

And finally, Paula said, “I have been working with a brilliant psychologist since. He tells me: ‘Turn your frown upside down.’”

Well you can see why psychologists to the stars are paid big bucks then…

Here’s a reminder of Paula being taken through her past lives on a show that was hosted by Eamonn Holmes…

Well, I couldn’t end this post on anything less than totally weird now could I?
